Fundraisers around North Devon are getting into the spooky spirit for Halloween. Micky and Amanda Parker are transforming their Orchard Road home in Barnstaple into a walk-through ghost train to raise money for North Devon Hospice. And in South Molton, the Drake family has set up a seriously spooky display outside their house in Hugh Squier Road for the South Molton Age Concern and South Molton Childrens Centre. Its the first time the Drakes mum and dad Ioni and Adam, plus their four children Lee, seven; Katie, six; Georgina, three; and 16-week-old Alfred have held a Halloween display, and its already getting plenty of attention. Ioni said: Weve been out in all weathers for the past two weeks putting everything together. Weve already raised more than £20 and hopefully can raise more and more. Loads of the kids friends from school have been coming to have a look. Seven-year-old Lee explained why they chose the two charities. Some people dont have much money or things to eat and drink, he said. Its a nice thing to do. The Parkers, meanwhile, held a haunted house event last year, and decided this year to go bigger and better and support North Devon Hospice. They will be opening their house at 64 Orchard Road to the public on Halloween night, between 5.30-9pm, with all manner of frightful surprises and ghostly apparitions awaiting anyone who dares to enter. Micky said: Weve got all sorts of props and were hoping to have about 10 people playing characters, too. Theyve got special effects from America, have borrowed sound equipment from Soundpad and enlisted the talents of Traceys Faces for masks and face painting. Weve always liked Halloween and wanted to support a great cause in the hospice by making a big effort, added Micky.
